||SAM 65 Alaska - In the early 80's a group of flyers on the Kenai peninsula got together, joined SAM, and formed Chapter 65. The founding fathers were Van Wilson, Bill Topia, Dave Unruh and Jerry Clak. In the late 80's they started having a mid winter Fun-Fly at Summit Lake Lodge.
The lodge is half way between Anchorage and Soldotna Alaska. In the late 80's or early 90's they invited the members of The Alaska Radio Control Society to the fly-in. This was very successful and was held the first weekend of March and is still is. In recent years the lodge changed hands and is now closed. The contest was held at The Sunrise Lodge on Kenai Lake for one year and then move the Trail Lakes Lodge in Moose Pass, AK. The site is just like the Summit Lake site and has been successful there. The Peninsula Modelers still run the contest with other flyers as guests.
Because of winter conditions in Alaska in March - no thermal duration records are likely but the event has developed into a great mid winter flying event and get-together.

|| Who are we?... SWOOT (South Western Ontario
Old Timers) was established in 1992 to preserve the history and
flying of model aircraft and engines, that were born and developed
during the early days of aeromodelling. This period, generally
speaking, began in the late twenties and early thirties and at
that time the aircraft were flown in a "free flight" mode. This
meant that the skill of the modeller and the knowledge of the theory
of flight, played a very important role in the adjustment of the
aircraft for safe flight. Our members continue to pursue these
concepts through the flying of replicas that in some instances
are powered by the original engines that were used in the early
days of this hobby. Also flown are rubber powered aircraft of that
era, as well as gliders; so there's lots of choices for everyone.A
